Today started with all of us wanting to remain in the comfort of our luxurious beds at the Hilton Garden Inn. We ate a delicious breakfast and hit the road bright and early. For the majority of the day we rode in the shade of gravel bike paths. Along the path, Dan and Julianna were  minding their own business when out of nowhere a huge bird ( probably a crane) darted from the side of the path crowing and scared us. After we realized what happend we burst into laughter and continued riding.

After arriving at Emmanuel United Church of Christ, we enjoyed some refreshments prepared by some of the church members. We then took showers and got ready for dinner. A buffet of food was set out for our choosing and it was delectable!

Later on, we met Cody, who is 18 and battling Duchenne. He and his family drove down to see us and we had a nice time chatting with them. Thanks for coming out today!

Update on Xavier- As you already know, we met Xavier and his family in Minneapolis. He is a fun loving kid who loves tea cup pigs and being goofy. Unfortunately, we recieved some bad news regarding Xavier’s latest doctor’s appointment. ¬†He has been diagnosed with an infection of the bones. If you could, please keep Xavier and his family in your thoughts and prayers. They are a great family and it is sad to hear that this has happend. We love you Xavier and hope to see you all next year!
